infinix gt book

Infinix has entered the gaming laptop arena with the GT Book, a budget-friendly option starting at around $720. The base model features an Intel Core i5-12450H CPU and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 GPU, so is it worth getting this budget gaming laptop?

Build and Design

  • Solid construction with aluminum lid and base (plastic keyboard deck)
  • Understated aesthetics with subtle patterns and orange highlights (no excessive “gamer” elements)
  • Large 16-inch display with thin bezels (16:10 aspect ratio)
  • RGB lighting on the keyboard (customizable zones) and a back strip (optional)

Display

Infinix GT Book with 13th Gen Intel core processor, Nvidia GeForce RTX GPU  launched in India: price, specs

  • Decent 16-inch 1920×1200 IPS LCD panel with good color calibration and brightness (suitable for indoor use)
  • 120Hz refresh rate for smooth visuals
  • Major drawback: Early reviews point to slow response times create ghosting effects in fast-paced games

Keyboard and Trackpad

  • Standard chiclet-style keyboard with decent travel and feedback with a questionable number pad inclusion
  • RGB lighting with customizable zones
  • Large and smooth trackpad

Performance

  • Three power modes (Gaming, Performance, Office) adjust power limits for CPU and GPU
  • Mux switch allows switching between integrated and dedicated graphics

Other Considerations

  • Limited connectivity options (only two USB-A ports, one USB-C port, and no Ethernet)
  • Average battery life (around 5 hours for basic tasks, 1.5 hours for gaming)
  • Slow charging with the included 210W charger (similar speeds achievable with a 65W USB-C charger, but limited to 30W power delivery)

Software

  • Clean Windows 11 installation with minimal bloatware
  • Useful Control Center app for managing power modes, RGB lighting, and other settings

Conclusion

The Infinix GT Book offers a compelling option for budget-conscious gamers. It boasts a decent build quality, and according to early reviews, good overall performance (especially considering the price), and a clean software experience. However, the slow display response times and limited connectivity options hold it back.
